White Denim Premier New Video, Add Tour Dates

Austin-based White Denim have been a staple on the city’s rock scene for a couple years, and now the band is looking to reach ears in other states. The band will be embarking on the second leg of their North American tour starting in May.

The group also recently debuted a new video on Pitchfork. The video accompanies the song “Drugs” and is confusing, to say the least. It involves the band and a lot of toilet paper. Check it out.
